Hi Dan

We have just got back from Phuket. Stayed in Kata beach. There are hundreds and hundreds of Tailors plying for your business outside their shops.. a real pain as don't give up when you say no thanks!. We were recommended by a local to use his tailior in Kata, called New Topaz. Located on corner of Kata Center. We were quoted approx £110 (sterling) for jacket and 2 pairs on matching trousers. Boyfriend decided not to bother, but guy wasn't hassling us and uses good quality fabric. Would take approx 3days. We were told many tailors use poor quality fabric and poor finish. Lots offer deal at USD199 for suits/shirts etc.

The other tailor who has been recommended on this site is Toms Collection in Patong.

Anyone that has used or can recommend a tailor in Kata? We will be looking ofr both men's and women's clothing, and I'm hoping to bring back some quality items (not something that will fall apart after 2 wearings).
